Sorry to hear that your husbands PSA is on the rise. I live in the Vancouver, B.C., region and was lucky to find wonderful Doctors here when I was diagnosed with cancer. I have not had to deal with HT yet and I dread the day when and if I have to go that route. Unfortunately, here in Canada, information, Doctors and proper treatments are not easy to come by. I have heard of many horror stories as to how the sick and elderly are being treated in our 'Great Country'. Your best chance of getting the help you and your husband need, is probably to go to on of the bigger cities in B.C., Alberta or Ontario unless you are financial able to go to one of the big cancer centers in the States. I wish I could be of more help to you. Perhaps some one with more helpful information will chime in.
Wishing all the best for you and your husband.
